Party Animal with YNS

Hi everyone! I'm super excited to tell you that I'm Guest Designing this month for Your Next Stamp. I have loved their stamps since I started stamping (they are so cute and playful!) and they have a lot of other great products that I've had an amazing time playing with. I'll be showing off some of these for the new release on 12 May and their challenges this month so I hope you come take a look.

For my first card, I played with the Party Pets stamp and the Stick Frame die set. Isn't that pup adorable?!

To start, I stamped the puppy on white cardstock and colored him with copics. Then I fussy cut him out. For the background, I die cut the frame out of a white panel and also a black panel. I played with mixing and matching the white and black frames as an inlay on the top white panel and settled on white on white with just a touch of the black in the corners. The balloon background is from a pack of patterned paper I had and matched the pup's party hat. I glued it to the back of my top panel and then added it to the front of a top folding A2 card. I used foam tape to pop the puppy up slightly and stamped the sentiments underneath.

Stamps: YNS - Party Pets
Dies: YNS - Stick Frame set
Inks: MFT - Black Licorice; Copics - B05, C00, C0, E37, YR21, YR27
